In the summer of 2012, nine of us went on an incredible 2 week journey from Vancouver to Gwaii Haanas National Park on Haida Gwaii.

We explored northern BC, went on a 6 day paddle in Gwaii Haanas, visited several ~10,000 year old village sites, learned about the Haida people and their incredible history, and relaxed in the most epic hot spring I have ever seen.

It is a huge, rugged, wet and spiritual place. I can't wait to go back.

I was born there and knew it as my first home. Moving to the mainland was a culture shock and though I haven't been back there is over 20 years it brings tears to my eyes to watch your video and see those visions that still speak "home". Thank you for sharing your video and your adventure, I hope one day soon to return even if only for a visit. Happy travels, d
